Former Blues Great Red Berenson Named To Red Wings Alumni Game Roster

Most Blues fan remember Red Berenson one of two ways. They either remember him as the tough nosed player that played with the team for their first two and a half seasons (in which the Blues made the Stanley Cup finals) and from 1974-1978. Or, fans remember Red Berenson the coach -- the only other Jack Adams winning coaches in Blues history are Brian Sutter, current Blackhawks coach Joel Quennville, and the Blues' current one, Ken Hitchcock.

Fans of Berenson based in St. Louis would prefer to remember him in the Bluenote, but between his stints in St. Louis he played four and a half seasons for the Detroit Red Wings. He's as beloved in Michigan as he is in St. Louis, and the Detroit Red Wings've proved it by naming Berenson to their alumni game team. The game (lockout pending, of course) will be played at Comerica Park in Detroit before the 2013 NHL Bridgestone Winter Classic.

Berenson is currently the coach at the University of Michigan, so presumably the alumni game will just be another home game to Red. Best of luck to the 72 year old coach - getting back out there on ice will probably be like getting back on a bike for him. I doubt he's forgotten how to play.
